There's nothing more regal and timeless than a woman in red
lipstick. Red lipstick has been one of the most classic looks that has
lasted through the decades. From 1930's french designer Coco Chanel, to
50's bombshell Marilyn Monroe, to today's modern rebel Gwen Stefani,
red has been a staple for many fashion icons. It connects women from
all walks of life, from the girl next door, to the high powered
attorney on Capitol Hill. Red lips make any face look instantly elegant!
There's a red lipstick for everyone, and some of the best are those with blue undertones.
The blue undertones help brighten the face, as well as make your teeth
look whiter. When finding the right red lipstick, it is best to match
it with your skin tone. True reds work best on pale faces, while olive/brown skin is best with brown-reds, and deeper mahogany shades.
To achieve your desired red lip, here are some of the best red lipsticks on the market:
For one of the most universal reds, MAC Russian Red Lipstick
is a gorgeous matte red shade. It's perfect from the palest to the
darkest skin. For darker skin feel free to pair with a liner a shade or
two darker and blend to tone down the red.
